Gay Food?

By Les Lea

OK, so, for no particular reason I was wondering if there was such a thing as gay food.

Not that I’m obsessed that if we are gay then we might be influenced by what we eat or anything… I just thought it would be fun to see what people thought of the idea. I was expecting a litany of exotic quiches or something like soft poached eggs in a champagne and fennel infused cous cous but no… everyone seemed to think sexual objects.

Bananas topped the list of the most ‘gay’ food, although carrots, cucumbers and sausages were not far behind. I must give a hearty cheer to the chap who suggested his favourite was a “…lovely big, purple aubergine!!!” I had tears in my eyes thinking about that one but perhaps I should have thought what a wonderful moussaka it would have made instead of where my mind ventured.

Other suggestions included – Cock-o-vin, toad in the hole, muffins, Spotted Dick, puff pastry, Camp coffee and a green ‘tossed’ salad. Some of the American responses had brand names that had a certain ring to them like; Twinkies and Ding Dongs but I drew the line at the suggestion for Cadbury’s finger of Fudge.

However, my favourite response was from ‘Anon’ who simply said he could never get through a meal with his gay friends without a good helping of ‘sarcasm’.
